    Very interesting use of colour and filters? in these joseph but I like the simplicity of the second image.

      They are done with a mix of layers and effects. In the case of the second image. It went through a few processes. I created split layers, like a mask. The top half has one set of opacity and blend, while the bottom half has another. The first image has a vertical split so the right side & left side have different combinations. 🙂

        Oh wow, love the idea of split layers with different opacity and blend modes it opens up a whole new world, thank you Joseph. Your students at school/college must have loved your classes for all the innovations you brought to them.

        The other thing you can do is punch holes in the layers leaving sections blank. or else modify sections of the layers using different effects, such as an emboss or Redfield plugin. 😉

      Thanks Sherry. Glad you enjoyed the post. If you are interested, I have been putting most of my experimental pieces on my Implied Spaces blog and emphasizing mostly photography on this blog. The photo blog has been around longer and has a richer range of images. 🙂

  3. At my last eye exam the doc said my vision hadn’t changed, then I saw your post and wondered what I was seeing. Your skill at using textures has always intrigued me keep on keeping on.
